You even got the time right.
It's highly impressive, and a neat little walk.

Lovely shot eggs. I couldn't think of anything else so flat, shallow and expansive.

Correct 'dingo. On Didthul/Pigeon House Mountain. The views behind me are more easily recognised.

Bit of a strange one. I'm at a track head about to push on up...so looking away in the opposite direction before I take the climb on.

Yep, in NSW...but only just.

Not Bendethra but you could probably see it from the top of this climb. From the top of this walk you see a lot!

Except our photos are not of Chambers Pillar - but close enough. This formation is called the Castle and the track goes around it.
There are a few eroded remnants in the area. We spent 2 nights there.

This waterfall is either an 8 hour walk or accessed by kayak/canoe!

I knew straight off it was Nitmiluk, but I do not recognise the fall, despite having gone all the way up to the tenth gorge.

It's named after both a flower and a feminine name
